About us

Winner of the St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition 2019, the Brompton Quartet is known for its engaging and dynamic performances. Recent highlights include a debut at the Wigmore Hall and Turner Sims, Southampton, an appearance on BBC Radio 3 ‘In Tune’ with violist Lawrence Power and being selected as a Park Lane Group Artist.

The Quartet has performed at prestigious venues such as Kings Place, Conway Hall, and St Martin-in-the-Fields. The members met at the Royal College of Music and soon established themselves as a young, exciting ensemble. The Quartet explore a diverse range of repertoire, from the Baroque era to works of the present day. Their contemporary repertoire includes pieces by Roxanna Panufnik and Richard Ayres and last year, the Brompton premiered ‘The Man Who Planted Trees’ by Noah Max. They have received guidance from renowned artists such as Alfred Brendel, Heinz Hollinger, and members of the Pavel Haas and Marmen Quartets.

As a featured Making Music Artist for 2020-21, the Quartet recently completed a series of recitals for music societies around the UK, including Darlington, Wallingford, and Marlow. They have been chosen as Quartet-in-Residence at the Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival 2022.

This group is made up of four exceptional soloists who have a spark of something very special when they come together
